The Acton lab studies stromal/leukocyte interactions combining cell biology, image analysis and in vivo studies to investigate control of lymphoid tissue dynamics and anti-tumour immunity. Projects in the lab include investigating the mechanisms of lymph node expansion during inflammation, the communication between leukocytes and fibroblastic stroma in tumour microenvironments and the regulation function controlled by mechanical tension.
fibroblastic reticular cells in culture expressing Myosin-light-chain fused to
GFP and stained for F-actin filaments.
